Colors of the following climate diagrams: Hawaii Quebec
Daily maximum temperatures
The highest daytime temperatures in Quebec are reached in July with an average of 23.9 °C. The coldest month, on the other hand, is January, with an average of just -4.8 °C. In Hawaii, August is the warmest month, with 30.4 °C. There, it is coolest in February with an average of 26.6 °C.
Night time lows
At night, it cools down to varying degrees depending on the country and altitude. In Quebec, temperatures drop as low as -14.8 °C in January. The warmest nights are in July at 12.8 °C. In Hawaii, it is coolest at night in January at 18.6 °C and warmest in August at 23.0 °C. This corresponds to a cooling of 8.2 to 11.7 °C in Quebec and 7.2 to 8.2 °C in Hawaii.
The humidity of the air depends to a large extent on the air temperature. The warmer the air, the more water it can absorb. At a temperature of 25°C it is 23 grams per cubic meter, at 30 degrees it is already 26 grams. Therefore, the air humidity is given as a relative value to the temperature-dependent maximum amount. It becomes unpleasant when high humidity is combined with high temperatures.
Rain days per month
By definition, a rain day is a day on which at least 0.1 liters of precipitation per m² fall. This corresponds to a 1 square meter puddle in which the water stands 0.1 mm high — insofar as the water does not seep away or evaporate. So it does not have to rain all day long. December brings the most rainy days (13.0) in Quebec. With an average of only 9.1 days, September is the friendliest. In Hawaii, it rains most often in March with 10.9 days.
Precipitation amount per day
Depending on the season and the location of a country, the wind brings a varying amount of water with it. As a rule, the water evaporating in the oceans is absorbed and then transported inland. The greatest amount of rain (hail or dew are also forms of precipitation) in Quebec occurs in October, when about 3.5 liters per square meter fall per day. In Hawaii, the average amount of precipitation ranges from 1.8 liters per day in June to 5.3 in December. However, these are average values. If you consider that there are only 10.2 rainy days in Hawaii in December, each of them accounts for about 15.4 liters.
Sunshine hours per day
With 2,592 hours of sunshine per year, Hawaii is in the lead. The most hours of sunshine (8.4 per day) are in June. Quebec falls into second place with only 2,154 hours. There the sun is visible in December for only 2.4 hours per day, so not hidden behind clouds.
Hours of daylight
The length of a day varies throughout the year and depends on the distance from the equator. In December, the day in Quebec is only 8.5 hours long. In June, on the other hand, it is 16.0 hours. In Hawaii, it is 10.9 hours in December and 13.4 in June.
